7:07 pm
thousands took to the streets after friday prayers. five by beautifully could they chanted and peace peace. large crowds also gathered in other cities. the protesters oppose president abdullah as e's bouteflika standing for a fifth term in elections next month they say he is no longer fit to lead and are fed up with his iron fisted rule. the it's simple we just want to change for our country we want a better idea only the middle twenty years are enough here that it assures we the people who are here protesting would only want change and freedom. later in the day violence flared police used tear gas and food with protesters near the presidential palace one elderly man reportedly died after being caught up in

7:09 pm
protests have been organized quite spontaneously through tools like facebook missin and what this means is that people receiving chain messages in their personal facebook inbox from people they know when people they don't know are in these messages contain instructions on where to go or to rally and we've got one of these messages to show you this was sent to us by an activist in algeria on the ground he's a screenshot of one of the messages to organize the protests which began a week ago as i said it's giving instructions the dyson the time and the location of ways to gather in this case the twenty second of february at nine am and it says here where hoping to bring forty million people to the streets it says avoid bringing flags that are not the algerian flag and bring musical instruments and whistles and so it can be happy and joyful don't use violence don't engage with

security officers let's let's be peaceful and what else sources have been saying there is that it's not quite sure who's behind these messages they choosing to stay fairly anonymous but as i said they are spreading very quickly and people are receiving either that message or very similar ones from all types of people in their facebook in boxes and organizing something like this on a public page would be quite risky in a place like algeria reporters without borders is saying that the government is muzzling the media there at the moment so that's why these things being done sort of secretly anonymously. what i like what are the types of people who are the types of people that are going out and protesting well it's generally young people so. university students young professionals we have to keep in mind. protests like these in algeria fairly rare but of course it's these upcoming elections that are kicking things into gear this this elderly sikh president once a fifth term in these protests is saying no will we don't want. head of the
